    Thought Chrome was supposed to be crash proof, they sandbox tabs surely they sandbox plugins as well ?

       You’ve been misled for a long, long time.

      It does sandbox, but maybe it’s the result of Google’s “half-baked” (Tom’s Hardware’s Words) Flash plugin. It’s fine with Chromium.

       you know whats funny? chrome is by google, and youtube is by google (ever since they bought it)

      it should be the last browser to crash there

      what i think of chrome is that google got too proud and spoiled with chrome’s success and nowadays its not success but sucksess

    This happend to me many times in Chrome even when I was downloading something (so frustrating). I Finally made the big switch to Firefox and no looking back. Google Chrome use to be good now it just sucks soo unstable

    I thought my computer had a virus, but I found out a few minutes ago (before I came here) it’s been a common problem the last few days. Google get it together!

    • Your Not Greg Lol

      Hahaha do people still get  viruses?! Why put up with common problems when you can have a stable browser instead? Chrome has been crashing way before this came along. Its nothing new. Save yourself  !
